Have you ever thought of having a 2-hour conversation surrounded by local beers with a National Hero?
The iconic Cannigia is an Argentine former professional footballer who played as forward or winger. A quick, and physically strong striker, with good technique that played 50 times for the National Team. He appeared in three World Cups and was a member of both rival clubs River Plate and Boca Juniors.
At the 1990 FIFA World Cup, Caniggia scored two key goals to help Argentina reach the final. In the opening game of the tournament against Cameroon, he was fouled three times in a single dribble, the last taking him out and earning Benjamin Massing a red card. In the second round match against Brazil, a pass by Diego Maradona put him through against goalkeeper Taffarel, with Caniggia dribbling past him and slotting the ball into the net to give Argentina victory. This is the moment where he became a national hero!
Throughout the 1991 Copa América, Caniggia asserted his dominance and was arguably the most dynamic player. He scored 2 goals and made 4 assists in the tournament as Argentina won the title. He also helped Argentina win the 1992 Confederations Cup, in which he scored a goal in the final itself.
Now imagine sitting down in a traditional Bodegón, a local bar in Buenos Aires and talk about football, World Cup, and some behind the scenes stories while drinking and eating some local food? More than that, get an Argentina National Team signed jersey by the hands of Cannigia!
